Panera Bread in Carlyle neighborhood of Alexandria Virginia - awning

As readers know, there’s going to be a new Panera Bread in the Carlyle neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. Click this link to see our previous posts on this development. There is a projected opening time-frame of mid-February right now from what I am hearing. They recently put up new awnings around the site (see above and below). I like them, what about you?

Majestic Cafe Alexandria, Virginia

I strolled by here yesterday and noticed The Majestic Cafe, located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, is closed. Sign (below) says ‘reopening soon. Their website states they are closed for renovations and are re-opening Monday (today?). Their Facebook page reveals nothing either. I tried called this A.M. but, no one answered. I also looked through the window and could see nothing happening in the way of renovations (at least in the front of the house).

This leads me to believe could the closure be attributed to this news?

What do you think?
